I did a bad virtualbox installation on 4.19.2-1-MANJARO with pacman.

This is my initial install stdout:

[gloom@tacos-pc etc]$ sudo pacman -S virtualbox
error: could not register 'multilib' database (database already registered)

I believe it was a bad install because when I tried to run virtualbox after installation I got an error that said:

Unloading modules: 
Loading modules: modprobe: FATAL: Module vboxnetadp not found in directory /lib/modules/4.19.2-1-MANJARO
modprobe: FATAL: Module vboxnetflt not found in directory /lib/modules/4.19.2-1-MANJARO
modprobe: FATAL: Module vboxpci not found in directory /lib/modules/4.19.2-1-MANJARO
modprobe: FATAL: Module vboxdrv not found in directory /lib/modules/4.19.2-1-MANJARO

I was following the instructions listed here: https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php?title=VirtualBox#Install_VirtualBox and I selected the default kernel option (first prompt during install) instead of selecting one based on my manjaro install for linux*-virtualbox-host-modules.

Then I tried to uninstall virtualbox by using packman -Rs virtualbox. However, when I try to start again, I am not given the prompt to select my linux*-virtualbox-host-modules version. When I try to install again, it defaults to virtualbox-6.0.2-1. Obviously I'm not great at installing things. Then I moved linux${wrong}-virtualbox-host-modules to the side and tried installing again... It did not prompt me for the version number but I let the install anyway.

When I tried to run the second install, I got this error:

WARNING: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module
         available for the current kernel (4.19.2-1-MANJARO) or it failed to
         load. Please recompile the kernel module and install it by

           sudo /sbin/vboxconfig

         You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed.
/usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox: /usr/lib/libQt5Core.so.5: version `Qt_5.12' not found (required by /usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox)
/usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox: /usr/lib/libQt5Core.so.5: version `Qt_5.12' not found (required by /usr/lib/virtualbox/VBoxGlobal.so)

Then I tried to pacman -S linux419-virtualbox-host-modules and it ran successfully but I still have the error.

How do I fix this?
